How can that be cost effective?
I am  not sure I buy that they park a truck, maybe a trailer.

For Luddites like myself what does the instagram post say?
Its just that somebody decided to re-home the content as an archive and it shows the link I posted

All socials dark since 2019. Doesn't look good.

General Questions / Re: Alternate Expression Pedals

There is the Tom Scholz (from Boston) Hyperspace pedal. It's like a two axis expression pedal. Like a joystick, which you could also use.





Edit: I didn't realize but there is a dual axis controller available

The only component I can't place is a R10 10k. I don't know where it could be, except to the Level pot to avoid to goes to the ground cutting the volume. Or? In parallel with the pot? I bet it's placed near the end of the signal.
It looks like R9 and R10 should be connected to the same pin of the level pot.

In the video we can read printed on the PCB the trimmer value of the Level: B250k.
And C1 is labelled 473, so it's 47nF.
C1 looks similar to C2, maybe it's a 47nF.
Good eye!
The B250k label is actually on the Gain pot.

Trimpots are all B taper, so the taper is not usually specified, so that's odd. For a TS, it would normally be an 500k A taper, so maybe that's why, who knows...

I'd be surprised if the Level pot is anything but a 100k.

I'll add the new values to the list above and put the educated guesses in parenthesis.

I don't know much about Mr. Fuller, but I question the judgement of anyone who center-aligns an entire letter.

The only thing that could make it worse is to have used Comic Sans as the font.  ;D

He could have tiled his log behind the text :)

What does he mean by "4 year climate"?

I noted the values in the previous post above and compared them against the Son of Screamer schematic values and they are very close. I would imagine Gibson pretty much copied it and used the asymmetric led clipping for a different flavor

There are actually 2 circuits within the control cavity: 1) A boost module (which I believe I have the schematic) and 2) The overdrive module.
No, there is just one overdrive circuit

Here is the schematic of the boost circuit I found online

The boost circuit is attached to a volume pot iirc. The boost effect is available for 'drop-in' replacement from Rare Buzz effects - called the 'Krinklebine'

I find the connector between the 2 circuits interesting.

The circuit attached to the push pot is not a boost, it's just the switching and connectors for the other board. I've never heard of the boost circuit and it is not present in the guitar in the video.

Also, R4 is 51k which is an odd value associated with the TS. This is likely more of a Son of Screamer due to lack of IO buffers

Interesting... First time hearing of this. The 4558 and 51pf cap looks like a tubescreamer but with Marshall style red/green led clipping.

Here are the values that can be seen:


R1 - 2M2
R2 - 470k
R3 - 4k7
R4 - 51k
R5 - 1k
R6 - 10k
R7 - 220R
R8 - 1k
R9 - 10k
R10 - 10k
R11 - 10k
R12 - 10k

C1 - 47n
C2 - ? (47n)
C3 - 51p
C4 - ? (220n)
C5 - ? (220n)
C6 - 1u
C7 - 47u

LED1 - Green
LED2 - Red

IC1 - 4558

TrimPOT LEVEL- ? (100k)
TrimPOT TONE - ? (20k)
TrimPOT GAIN - B250k
